Many may wonder why they should quit their daily jobs and start working online. Working online has very many advantages than normal jobs from 8 to 5 fail to offer. The first advantage is that you will save a lot of time since working online requires very little of your time and you will have enough time to spend with family and friends.
Another advantage of working online is passive income; passive income simply means you are going to make money in your sleep literally. Isn’t that the coolest thing? Many people do not prefer working at all and working online gives you a chance to start making money online while doing very little.
Working online has no limit of the amount you are going to make and the amount is solely dependent on your efforts unlike your daily job where you get constant pay year in year out. Having given you a glimpse of what it is like to make money online, let’s begin learning ways to make money online as a freelancer.
Creating online courses
Creating online courses is simple and just from the name you already know what it entails. The big question in this case is how is it done? Don’t worry i got you covered. First and foremost, you need to pick a discipline or course that you are well familiar with.
Examples of the courses you will create fall under mathematics, English, social sciences, history, law, engineering and other disciplines. The first objective after identifying the discipline is to write down topics that students normally have a problem understanding then create a short or long course depending on difficulty.
Make sure that your course is systematically structured so that any student willing to take your course is able to understand without any difficulty. The reason why a student will choose to study your course is because they did not understand when the topic was being discussed or want to learn for personal a reason that is why your course content needs to fill this gap and facilitate easy understanding of the topic in discussion.
After your course is ready you can choose from a variety of platform that allows you to sell your content and i recommend Udemy because it is a trusted site that will allow you to make money from your courses. When your register at Udemy you will learn how you will be making money online from creating courses.
Start a blog
A blog is not a get-rich-quick scheme and this is why many bloggers fail to make money online. A blog is pretty much about anything just like creating online courses. The difference between a blog and creating online courses is method of payment although one can monetize their blog through membership plan where users pay some fee to access the site.
Starting a blog requires you to pick a topic about anything although it is important for you to choose a topic that you have passion in for it to become easier as you grow your blog. You will be required to update your blog consistently as well as promoting your blog to reach as many people as possible.
Before you begin blogging it is very important that you consider time as factor because it really requires that you put in substantive effort before you begin to reap the fruits of blogging.
One advantage of blogging is that you can work from anywhere and at any time of the day because you are your own boss. If you really think that this is what you should be doing there are numerous posts about blogging that will get you started from my older posts.
Work as a freelance writer
I began working online as a freelance writer and i must admit that i was completely shocked by how much i was making writing articles for other bloggers, doing academic assignment and other business articles. Writing is an awesome way of making money online and if you think you are a decent writer, there are numerous opportunities for you to start making money online as freelance writer.
Normally, you are provided with instructions on what to write so no hustles all you need is to do research on the topic and come up with quality content. You can start making a living right away by searching writing jobs online.
If you understand more than one language then you have plenty of opportunities to teach other people the languages that you understand. This concept is pretty simple all you need is that extra language that someone is willing to learn. There are several platforms to enable you teach such as italki where students are connected with teachers so that they can learn through a virtual tutor though in real-life. These lessons can also be taught on Udemy just as i have explained on our first way of making money online.
Self-publish books (ebooks)
Just from the way you create your courses and teach languages you can publish your own book on a specific topic and sell it through various ways online. Again just like our previous ways of making money online you need to come up with a topic that is in demand and create high-quality contents in the best manner than someone can easily understand and that’s it. You will host your self-published book on various networks such as Amazon, Tripleclicks and other legit platforms including your own blog. Note that there is no minimum number of pages.
